So today is October 27th and, since I am becoming an American in my heart, I am in the middle of preparations for Halloween. Fall in the US is so festive: Halloween and its hilarious parties, then the feast of Thanksgiving, and finally Christmas time! I am back in France for a while, but I have firm intentions to celebrate everything as it should be.
This year, I wanted to make an elegant costume—but something more maleficient than last year (for the record, I was a Raspberry). Why not a Disney villain? Yes, but a blonde one! A blond Disney villain? Does she exist? I researched a lot, and then I watched “Snow White and the Huntsman,” with Charlize Theron playing the evil queen. I didn’t watch the film until after making the costume. [Snap review: not my style, but it will snare Twilight fans.] Charlize’s performance was striking, and I literally quivered at the sight of her costumes. I finally got my blonde villain! So I made this costume inspired by her. Below, I tell you how to make the crown :)))
Happy Halloween! I hope you are proud of your costumes!
The original: the Queen Ravenna, played by Charlize Theron.
I am malefic, but still blonde! Hey, what did you expect?
Today I would like to celebrate the roaring twenties with this sparkly headband inspired by the movie The Great Gatsby. In this movie, I loved the style of Carey Mulligan, and I absolutely wanted to steal her accessories. My passion for the twenties is not new: remember this vidéo we made to invite our guests to our Roaring Twenties new year party?
Anyways: I literally fell in love with this headband from Antropologie. Then I wondered “shouldn’t I make it myself?” So below, you will learn how to make a 20’s headband from a necklace!
Thanks to Elsa for the pics. We took them in the old center of Seattle, near Pioneer Square, the favorite place for homeless people. By the way, they loved our outfits!
See you soon, and thank you for all your nice comments :)
Today I’d like to show you this deer necklace. I made it with a beautiful gold leather, and I painted the horns with transparent acrylique paint filled with thin glitter. You can download the pattern below. Thank you so much Julie for the cool afternoon and the pictures!
“Hipster or cow-girl ? – Both!”
Seattle cow girls ride deers, just so you know.
With this drawing, people searching Google for “sexy cowgirl on a rain dear” will land here, yeah!
